Harnesses
Our harnesses are designed to give your dog unrestricted movement and to evenly distribute their work load. Each harness is sewn with extra nylon stitching at the stress points. All harnesses are made of durable nylon webbing with a thick Polartec 300™ padding. These harnesses have been put to the test by some of the best weight pullers, sledding and freighting dogs.

X-Back harness, top view X-Back Sledding Harness    HS52  $25.50

Our Black Ice X-Backs are made to give excellent freedom of motion and feature side straps which lie further to the back of the harness, providing less pressure on the rib cage and allowing for greater lung expansion. The self-adjusting "x" across the dog's back provides a better fit. This style is popular for lean bodied racing dogs and dogs in good physical condition. It is made of 1" heavyweight nylon webbing with thick Polartec 300™ padding on the neck and breastplate.

Harness Options:
The following options may be added when ordering harnesss.

Extended Padding    HS57  $8.00 extra per harness

We can extend the padding on the breastplate under the chest and behind the front legs, for greater comfort and reduced coat wear. This feature is often used for long distance racing. This option is already included in the Black Ice Northstar Harness.

Oval Loop    HS58  $1.00 extra per harness
We can substitute a woven, oval shaped polyethylene loop for the standard tied nylon rope loop on our sledding harnesses. The poly loop is stiffer and reduces fumbling in cold weaather hookups. This option is already included in the Black Ice Northstar Harness.

Reflective Strips    HS59  $6.00 extra per harness
Four strips of reflective Scotchlite Strips can be added to each harness so you can see your dogs better at night and for greater safety in the dark.

Custom Sizes    HS60  $10.00 extra per harness
We offer a wide range of sizes to accommodate most dogs. However, if you want a custom fit, we would be glad to sew a harness to your measurements. Please measure carefully since these harnesses are not returnable.
